1 in 100 Australians is autistic and 85% of the community has a personal connection with autism – yet only 4% of autistic people feel supported in their community.
You can make a difference. You can shape a better future for autism.

Together, we can shape a better future for autism
One of the most powerful ways you can help shape the future for autism is by including a gift in your Will towards Amaze’s work for inclusion and acceptance in Australia.
Amaze’s role is to ensure the voices of autistic people and their families are heard and their needs are met.
A gift in your Will will help build wider understanding of autism, support greater engagement with the autism community and promote acceptance of autistic people.
Our vision is for Australia to be a fair and just society that includes all people; that values the contributions of autistic people and which provides for the needs of all autistic people and their families, wherever they live.
You can be part of this vision by including a gift in your Will.
If you are considering including a gift in your Will to Amaze, we strongly encourage you to discuss your wishes with your family and loved ones. This ensures they support and understand your reasons for choosing to donate in such a meaningful way to improve the future for autism.
There are three ways you might choose to include a gift in your Will to Amaze:
When making or changing an existing Will, we suggest that you consult a trustee or a qualitied solicitor who will ensure your wishes are clearly and legally stated.
To ensure that your wishes are carried out as you intend, you may choose to include the following wording:
I give to Amaze Incorporated of 678 Victoria Street, Richmond, Victoria 3121, free of all duties, the <residue of my Estate> or <_% of my estate> or <sum of $> for its general purposes supporting autistic people and their families and I declare that a receipt under the hand the Chair of the Board of Directors, the Secretary of the Chief Executive Officer, or other Officer of Amaze Incorporated is a good and sufficient discharge to my Trustees for the payment and satisfaction of the legacy without seeing to the final distribution of the funds.
If you choose to include a gift to Amaze in your Will, we would appreciate you letting us know. Knowing of your life-changing decision will allow Amaze the opportunity to recognise your generosity for the autism community and keep you up-to-date with our work.
